The Innovation Lab at La Jolla Country Day School (LJCDS) aims to inspire greatness by challenging students to identify real-world problems and design creative solutions to effect positive change for a better world. We believe that innovation is the thread that connects technology with humans. The curriculum from kindergarten to Grade 12 focuses on learning how to use cutting-edge tools and technologies while developing an understanding of the social impacts of technology, solutions and design. 

Our collaborative space opened in fall 2015 and is equipped with a laser cutter (built from scratch by Upper School students), 3D printers, microcontrollers, Wacom tablets, drills, screwdrivers, hammers, sticky notes and anything else students may need for creative design and innovation. Divided into two sections for “clean” and “dirty" work, the flexible space includes mobile work stations, more than 4,000 square feet of writable wall and a 150 square-foot projection surface. From engineer and design to ethnographic research and user testing, students will prepare themselves for future success by innovating for people.
